Who will win Punjab vs Kolkata 52nd T20 IPL 2019 ?
Pitch Report :
Venue Details :- Punjab Cricket Association stadium , Mohali | May 3 , 2019 , 20:00:00, GMT +5:30
KXIP vs KKR IPL 2019 is going to be played at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali. The weather is expected to be hot and dry on match day. The humidity is also not expected to be too high so hopefully, there will not be too much dew on the ground either. Also! The pitch at Mohali has been good for batting. It has allowed the batsmen to play their shots but the big dimensions of the ground help even the contest a little. The bowlers have more room for error at this venue than at some others and we should see a good contest between bat and ball.
Punjab vs Kolkata Toss Prediction
The toss-winning team, in each of the five matches that have been played so far at the PCA this IPL season, has elected to bowl first and emerged victorious on three occasions.
